Why Coffee Art Painting?
Our idea of coffee art painting is inspired by Ramrocha organic coffee ‘Awaken your seven senses’ . Dr. Kris and Gerald Soh who are the founder came up with the idea for Ramro Cha, by the basic principle that we, as humans and fellow inhabitants of this planet, have both the duty and privilege to look after one another. It’s about raising our sense of awareness to the needs of others, and finding a way to meet those needs with a sense of honour and dignity. “For Us, It’s Not Just About Coffee… It’s About Creating a Movement for GOOD”. Malaysia Women Artists Association as an art organisation, through art form we express our support to charities creating a Movement for GOOD. This is why we use coffee as the medium to create artworks, and many people are attracted to the sepia tones of coffee, it gives a painting an overall sepia effect which is the color of nostalgia. It is practical, non-toxic and natural. It not only wakes us up in the morning but gathers people together, too.
‘Traces of TIme’ Coffee Art Painting Workshop & Charity Exhibition 2023 is the 3rd Coffee Art Charity Exhibition organised since 2019. In 2023, We had our coffee painting workshops in July, September and October, 5 sessions of workshop hosted in Penang and Sarawak. Where 3 sessions in Penang, 2 sessions in Sarawak.
